The Madrigal Chorus of Aachen

The Madrigal Chorus of Aachen has been in existence for 30 years. It emerged from the relative anonymity of the larger Aachen choruses by performing the secular and sacred choral music of the Renaissance and Baroque with appropriate small forces; soon they expanded into Romantic and modern choral music directions.

The first choral director, Johannes Meister, has since become the choral director of the Vienna State Opera; eight further members are now professional singers. Participation in international competitions has been awarded with first and second prizes, tours have been taken to England, Denmark, Israel, France, Estonia, Italy, India and Singapore, and radio recordings have been made for the BBC, Danish Radio, KRO (the Netherlands) and WDR.
